Paper Pumpkin Kit of the Month

I'm sure you've heard about Stampin' Up's new monthly kit called Paper Pumpkin. I've always wanted to receive a kit each month so was so excited with Stampin' Up came out with this. I finally had a chance to put my kit together.

This first card is exactly how the instructions told me to put it together. Nice and easy! Plus it's awesome to have 4 cards done right away!

Next, I searched Pinterest to see what others came up with.

This idea came from Krystals Cards. I changed a few things but most of it was the same. One of the things the instructions have are the colors being used. So it was a breeze to add to the kit by getting into my ink pads, papers and punches.

Once I did that card my confidence started to grow. So I did another search on Pinterest, this time for a card sketch. I found one that got me thinking and I came up with this card:

Again, nice and easy and lovin' that I have cards ready to go! Well after that I knew I was ready to try anything, lol! So I did another search for a card sketch and came up with this one:

This one took me the longest - I brought in another stamp set Summer Silhouettes along with some ribbon and pearls. I LOVE this card!! One of my favorites and it uses so many pieces of the Paper Pumpkin Kit.

I do have a few pieces left over so I will be able to add them to another card or page. All in all I think the kit is more than worth the $19.95 I paid! Plus all 4 of these cards were made in under 1.5 hours - a RECORD for me!
